Heading into Iluka from the highway, when the golf course appears on your right, keep an eye out for the Frazers Reef turnoff on the left. As far as well-maintained National Park beachside havens go, Iluka punches well above its weight and Frazers Reef is a typically quiet Iluka gem. The carpark / picnic area has toilets, barbecues, and a pleasing number of tempting tracks that meander to the beach. The main track leads to a small observation area which looks out to a large, exposed reef shelf to the north, and the southwards curve of the beach is flanked by Iluka Bluff. As scenic as this beach is, it has a slightly steeper gradient than Shark Bay or Woody Head, and certainly feels more exposed to the ocean’s energy. It is unpatrolled. Any oceanic activity, be it swimming, surfing or rock fishing would need to be exercised with extreme caution.
